As the world is struggling to resume its day-to-day activities amidst the prevailing coronavirus situation, most projects in the development phase are either at a standstill or lagging behind in their schedules. People are gradually adapting to learn to live with the virus; while continuing their work since no one sees any immediate end to the problem.

We hope that you remember the Game of Thrones Studio Tour which was supposed to open this fall (October) in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. It had promised to be a huge attraction for fans who miss the show; or those who just wish to witness the magic of its sets, costume, props, and behind-the-scenes glory in person. The rather sad news is that the tour won’t be able to make its autumn deadline due to the delays of COVID-19. But, be rest assured, the one-of-a-kind studio tour is still on its way. Read on to find out more.

Part of the Game of Thrones Legacy project in Northern Ireland, the £24 million effort is a joint venture by HBO and the Linen Mill Studios (the site of the studio tour). The HBO sensation shot extensively in Northern Ireland, and Linen Mill Studios was one of its prime locations. So, the studio tour was supposed to give an intimate look into the workings of the world of Westeros. However, the initiative has not even gone through the planning stages yet. Brian Johnston, ABC Council’s Head of Tourism, Arts and Culture, confirmed it to Armagh I; an online publication dedicated to areas in and around the government district of Armagh City, Banbridge, and Craigavon (ABC) in Northern Ireland.

The tourism arm of Northern Ireland (NI) has been very excited about the opportunity to host tourists from across the globe; who would get a welcome to the “deeply immersive and sensory experience” of Game of Thrones history. Mr. Johnston said that Tourism NI “really wanted the project to happen” and thus, were “putting great efforts into it”. He also assured that the Game of Thrones team was “heavily invested” and “still very positive about the development of the project”. But since the whole thing is still to go through the process of planning, the October date of operation is “unlikely to be the case”.

The studio tour will be a steady source of GoT tourism once it gets up and running. It’s expected to have about 600,000 visitors every year; who would have a park and ride facility near the Boulevard retail complex in Banbridge. Set to employ close to 200 people to assist the GoT lovers, the studio will provide a taste of its catering experience through a restaurant and ‘back-lot café’. The set pieces would include many iconic places from the seven kingdoms; the Great Hall of Winterfell, Dragonstone’s Throne Room and Map Room, Castle Black’s Mess Room, and the King’s Landing Courtyard. The fans will also get a chance to view the authentic props, costumes; plus engage in digitally interactive activities to know the behind-the-scenes aspects of the show such as the awe-inspiring special effects.

We know it’s a bummer that this amazing GoT treat will take some more time to arrive. But there’s a whole lot of business and plans that have got affected by the global crisis we’re in. A large number of people have lost their jobs and are struggling to make ends meet. So, please, be kind and helpful to those near you; they might need your support. Also, keep practicing the social distancing routine you’ve been following till now. We wish everyone who’s impacted by this a quick recovery, and good physical and mental health.

Fans had earlier known the looks of Matt Smith and Emma D’Arcy in their respective characters. The duo was seen filming at Holywell Beach in Cornwall in full make-up and costume. Also, the Daily Mail leaked a few more pictures from the set earlier this week, of the cast and the crew busy in action. They provided the first glimpse of Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon, The Sea Snake. But today’s House of The Dragon’s tweet surprised the fans even more. They provided the first costumed look at Otto and Alicent Hightower. In the Tweet, we can see Rhys Ifans and Olivia Cooke glistening in their amazing getup.

Photoshoots and campaigns are a big part of a celebrity’s income. However, sometimes they become victims of unfair treatment by publication houses, who use them for publicity. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) has filed a suit against Flaunt Magazine over inappropriate use of her ‘hot‘ photos.

According to The Blast, she participated in a photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine back in March of 2019. Clarke agreed on a one-time use in the June 2019 issue of the magazine and a single pre-approved promotional event in Shanghai. She claims she made it crystal clear to Flaunt that any other use of the photographs from the shoot was not permitted without her written approval.

Clarke claims Flaunt granted a Chinese cosmetics company, Perfect Diary, rights of her images that were not Flaunt’s to grant. They wrongfully allowed Perfect Diary to commercially exploit her photographs, voice, name and likeness to promote the brand’s products. Clarke had previously turned down a $700,000 offer to work with Perfect Diary. She alleges that numerous cosmetic companies who might have otherwise done business with her were admittedly misled to believe she was already working with one of their competitors.

She and her team repeatedly demanded that Flaunt cease their behaviour. However, they “brazenly refused to curtail or remedy all of its wrongful conduct.” So she filed the lawsuit seeking compensatory and statutory damages to the tune of $5 million.

Other than that, Emilia is currently busy writing her first comic M.O.M. What do you think about the lawsuit? Tell us in the comments below!

The world is fighting hard against the effects of COVID-19 right now. One of the few things that has kept the population distracted from the ongoing stress is the filming of House of The Dragon. The Game of Thrones prequel has caused quite a buzz amongst the fans. Ever since HBO teased the show back in December last year, fans have been on their toes. People all over the world are highly excited about the upcoming series, and leaked photos of the shoot keep pouring in.

Last week, the production came to a standstill when a crew member accidentally drove a truck into the water. Luckily all of the members were saved and no one was injured. It seems the filming has taken flight once again after the incident and is going on well.

These pictures surfaced yesterday on Reddit when a user named Tobeaned uploaded them on the social media platform. Holywell Beach is about half an hour away from his home, so he decided to pay a visit. Turns out, his trip was beneficial to all Game of Thrones fans who are eagerly waiting for House of The Dragon.

Earlier last week, Matt Smith (Daemon) and Emma D’Arcy (Rhaenyra) were spotted filming at the same beach. The above photos indicate that a Targaryen base is also being built on the site.
